be more effective, they are not widely available due to their prohibitively high cost.
  • A team studying at Virginia Commonwealth University, who helped develop an easy to assemble operating room table. The affordable, easy-to-use table will improve healthcare in surgical rooms around the globe.
  • A lower-cost, high-value and quality medical device developed in collaboration with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine that can save the lives of babies with an ailment called Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), an asphyxial event which occurs in three of 1,000 live births and causes death to 10% to 60% of affected infants. The device essentially is a "pot-to-pot" method, where a larger clay pot lined with nearly 5 cm of sand contains a smaller pot, in which a patient will be placed for therapeutic cooling. The experimental results indicate that the "Cooling Cure" is more efficient at cooling than the existing technology. In addition, the clay pot device costs $100 to build, which is less than 1% of the cost of the state-of-the-art device.
  • The conference was organized by the members of the National Value-driven Engineering for U.S. Global Competitiveness Steering Committee, which includes Harvard-Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Dr. Martha Gray; Johns Hopkins University's Dr. Soumyadipta Acharya, Dr. A. Jay Khanna and Dr. Youseph Yazdi; Medtronic's Mike Hess; Orthopaedic Research Laboratories' Dr. A. Seth Greenwald and Jonathan F.I. Greenwald; The University of Akron's Dr. Ali Dhinojwala; and ABIA's Dr. Brian L. Davis and Dr. Stephen D. Fening, the 2012 conference chair.
